Canadian Blog Awards - Best Conservative blog - And the winner is...

Small Dead Animals! (Was there ever any doubt?) - Award presented by Tim Powers (I love his accent!)

Congrats all my colleagues. It was quite a thrill to be in the top five, and among such distinguished bloggers - many of whom I've admired for years. Thanks to everyone who voted for me.

Kudos to all the organizers, especially Saskboy who has done such an awesome job with the winner announcements. So far my favourite is the Snow Birds announcing Best Military Blog.

Anyway, a special thanks goes out to reader 'Kingston' tonight for nominating Joanne's Journey, and to everyone who's travelled along with me.

It would be a lonely ride without you.

Main page to the Canadian Blog Awards is available here. We sure do have a lot of diverse blogging talent in Canada!

I should also mention that there are many noteworthy Conservative bloggers on the Blogging Tories blogroll. Please take the time to check them out.

Hey thanks, Vicki! And thanks for being such a loyal reader. I honestly wouldn't do this if people didn't comment. I get plenty of hits but they don't mean as much as people taking the time to weigh in on what you say - good or bad.

Kingston said...

Well done you Joanne. Extremely proud of you.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Thanks, Kingston! I really appreciate your support.

Today was also special because this blog had more than 1,400 hits today, which is a record for one day!

Top 5 reads every morning...National Newswatch, SDA, J's Journey, WKinsella and Calgary Grit...if you want to know whats really going on in Canada and from really different views these are the 5 I seriously recomend.

Thanks everyone. I'm feeling enough pressure with all this talk of 'must-reads'. Good thing I didn't place any higher. ;)

Joanne - could you please provide a direct link to the results? I can't seem to get the whole list from the website.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

could you please provide a direct link to the results?

Yes, sorry. I'll have to add that to the main post.

Main site is here, and then just keep clicking on 'previous entries' at the bottom of the page. It's really well done.

Oh, and BTW. If anyone thinks I might be getting a swelled head because this blog was in the top five, please be aware that it's not always a picnic:

eg. Dear Joanne:

You really are an indescribable hypocrite...


And that's the nice stuff. It gets worse.

"that's the nice stuff, it gets worse"

That's why the inventor of the computer put a "delete" button there for you to use on comments like that.

Chris said...

Good for you Joanne. Congrats!

I used to read Kinsella every day. Not so much any more. I find his blog hard to linger on, and he lapses into the whines a bit too often these days.

I also tend not to believe some of what he says.

Congratulations Joanne!!!

You should be tied for number 1

Best Blog in my book

Try to avoid believing anything he says. He's pure partisan evil.

The great thing about blogs, is the anonymity. The worst thing about blogs, is the anonymity.

These are the same folks who inscribe Nazi symbols into washroom walls.

Oh, and congrats.

Always enjoyable to read your blog.

I don't read SDA much anymore, a little two righty even for me, but I frequently visit here.

When I post here, I even clean up my language!
